BT unveiled proposals for the redevelopment of Keybridge House, Vauxhall, at two public exhibitions last week.
In preparation for the submission of the planning application later this year, BT and its property partner, Telereal Trillium, presented plans for a residential-led, mixed-use development to the local community.
The proposals, which include 379 new apartments and maisonettes, office and retail space, and 1.12 acres of open space, will play an important role in the regeneration of the Vauxhall, Nine Elms, Battersea Opportunity Area.
Keybridge House was built in 1975 for the Post Office and subsequently sold to BT, where it was the site of the UK's first, and the world’s largest, digital international telephone exchange.
The now-redundant, monolithic 15-storey building is oversized for modern requirements and is currently in the process of being decommissioned and partly relocated.
Keybridge House is owned by BT and the current planning application and future disposal is being managed by Telereal Trillium.
